Acne comes with sweet and cakes, finds new study

New Delhi : Facing acne problems more often? Check out your eating habit on junk food. A new study has found that people who eat more sugary products and cakes are likely to face acnes. A poor dietary habit can increase your stress and influence the skincare problems.

According to a research, presented during a meeting at the '28th EADV meeting' in Madrid, the results have been analyzed on more than 6700 participants across six countries in North America, South America and Europe.

This is the first time when a research has analysed both the internal and external factors which can influence the acne issues.

In the research, it was found that 48.2 per cent of the participants consumed dairy products on daily basis compared to the ones (38.8 per cent) who did not consume it. The difference was also statistically significant for soda juices or syrups (35.6 per cent vs 31 per cent), pastries and chocolate (37 per cent vs 27.8 per cent) and sweets (29.7 per cent vs 19.1 per cent). Surprisingly 11per cent of acne sufferers consume whey proteins versus 7 per cent without acne, and 11.9 per cent of acne sufferers consume anabolic steroids versus 3.2 per cent without acne.

Giving detailed information about the study, lead researcher Professor Brigitte Dreno said, "Acne is one of the most common reasons why people with skin issues contact a dermatologist. Its severity and response to treatment may be influenced by internal and external factors, which we call the exposome. For the first time, this study allows us to identify the most important exposome factors relating to acne from patient questioning prior to any treatment prescription."

Other than this the researchers also analysed that change in dietary habits, exposure to pollution and stress also played vital role for the ones who were facing acne problems compared to the one who were more balanced.

Acne is a disease that is faced by one out of every 10 people on global scale, making it the eighth most prevalent disease in the world.
